Bean harvest this week

I ran one tank of beans,they looked great and went thru well but are close to 15%.Looks like they will go around 65,think the later ones will be better.Supposed to be 60,sunny and windy tomorrow,hopefully we can run steady from one variety to the next this week

Re: Bean harvest this week

Had over 4 inches of rain wed-fri. Firmed up today but still wet and beans chewey. Hoping to start tomorrow in PM but getting light shower this PM so probably pushed back to Tuesday and it's going to be wet in seeps and terrace channels. Looking to be a wet fall. Wanted to get some wheat in but may not happen now. We shall see

Have rain coming in Wed night and Thursday. Will run hard when we can.

Be safe out there. Going to be a long fall

Re: Bean harvest this week

We missed out on most of the rain last week,got a tenth a couple times,had a couple of warm days but it was hazy and no breeze at all.Couple of neighbors did one field a week or ten days  ago that were an early variety  but have sat waiting for the rest to dry,hope I can finish a whole field and not have to jump around  to get endrows and low spots.

Re: Bean harvest this week

Looks like it's coming to a halt here for the week. 40 to 80% chance of rain every day this week except Wednesday & Saturday. Could have been done by Saturday, if we had another week like this past week!
Maybe the green stems will be gone after this wet spell
